The Extraordinary UnOrdinary You: Follow Your Own Path, Discover Your Own Journey

Simone Knego

Do you wake up every day feeling like you’re going through the motions, that the hundreds of choices you make have almost no impact on the people around you?

Many motivational books will tell you that in order to better the world, you must first better yourself. But you really only need to change the way you see yourself and the world around you will change.

What you do every day matters and inspires others. By sharing your story, you can motivate and encourage those around you—and in doing so, change the world.

Everyone has a story, and in The Extraordinary UnOrdinary YouSimone Knego takes you inside her unique journey and the extraordinary moments which have shaped her life and defined her mission. Sharing the lessons she’s learned from life’s ups, downs, and laugh-out-loud moments, you’ll be inspired to discover your own journey, and to go out into the world and be the good. The world is waiting for the Extraordinary UnOrdinary You, and you already have everything you need to get started, simply by being you.

Mark Wilf, board chair, Jewish Federations of North America, and owner/president, Minnesota Vikings

"Simone (Knego) is an inspirational leader and role model who teaches by her wonderful example. As a leader of Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), most recently as co-chair of its National Young Leadership Cabinet, Simone's life and actions impact and lift those around her. Many are recipients of her generosity, mind, and spirit."

Alison Lebovitz, host of The A List, PBS

"Simone takes the reader on a journey that is refreshingly authentic and utterly heartwarming. It is a bold and beautiful reminder that every decision has a ripple effect, every failure comes with a life lesson, and it takes ordinary actions to create extraordinary impact."

Lori Palatnik, author, international speaker, and founding director of Momentum

"The inspiring story of the Knego family is a must-read for every family that wants to be inspired to give more, care more, and love more. A true blessing for our times."

Simone Knego leads an ordinary life filled with extraordinary moments. As a wife, mother to six children (and three dogs), and a serial entrepreneur, she splits her time between her family, businesses, and personal growth. She’s realized the small choices she makes every day to do good actually have the power to inspire others. Simone shared that message during speaking opportunities she received as co-chair of the National Young Leadership Cabinet for the Jewish Federations of North America. With this book, she hopes to inspire you to embrace life’s ups and downs and realize the impact you’re making on the world.
